well yes. but it could save you quite a bit of time + effort compiling it all yourself (especially if you don't have broadband or a CD burner)

the price seems okay (£2). Its only the people who charge a fortune for compilation discs that should be shot IMHO

As any fule no - it costs money to maintain the sites that this character has 'taken' these files from.

Do you think any profits he might make from this venture will be donated to BTTR or elsewhere? I doubt it.

Rattus has a point but it does encourage charging people for files which can be obtained freely, which obviously isn't good.

Better money can be given to the sites which maintain such files.

If it was Buy It Now then fair enuff..

But as it isn't this means the guy was hoping to make a packet from these CD's.. 5 CD's would cost him about 80p!!!

Now the bid is just under £3.00 atm.. now add his £3.00 postage charges and thats £6.00

He probably hoped to make at least £10 on the discs themselves... sorry but this is piracy regardless!!!
